Cemen Tech’s cement bin

The Cemen Tech cement bin precisely measures the correct amount of cement for concrete mix designs. This innovative system features dual augers that provide accurate cement metering. Once materials enter the continuous mixer, the dual augers mix materials evenly, ensuring a consistent mix design. The volumetric mixer then continuously pours fresh concrete until the operator stops it.

The cement bin’s design makes it easy to handle and transport cement. The low-profile bin has a rectangular loading hatch and an optional bag breaking grate. It can also be equipped with a pneumatic fill system. The bin features a lower auger that is partly encased in steel pipe. The auger metering system forces cement from the lower to the top auger. The augers also help to reduce waste by preventing over or under-mixing.
